You can connect a public vCloud to your vCloud Connector installation by either installing your own vCloud Connector node in your organization in the public cloud or by using a service provider multitenant node. To use a service provider node, ask your service provider to install a multitenant node in the public cloud and send you the node URL. You can then register the node with your own vCloud Connector server to connect the cloud.

You use the credentials for your organization in the public vCloud and the node URL provided by the service provider to register the node.

Note

To connect a vCloud Air cloud instance to your vCloud Connector installation, see Use vCloud Air vCloud Connector Nodes.

The service provider has installed a vCloud Connector node in the public cloud as a multitenant node.

1

Obtain the URL of the multitenant node deployed on the public cloud from your service provider.

2

Register the multitenant node with your vCloud Connector server using the URL provided by the service provider and your own public vCloud organization credentials.

See Register vCloud Connector Nodes with vCloud Connector Server for information.

3

If the service provider has installed a valid SSL certificate on the multitenant node, import the corresponding CA root certificate into the trusted keystore of your vCloud Connector server and nodes. See Add CA Root Certificate to Trusted Keystore.
